We are in the midst of re-imagining our religious exploration programs for children as we anticipate primarily virtual programs for the coming church year 2020-2021. Please consider filling out our online survey to assist us in best meeting your family’s needs.
At First Universalist, we are committed to encouraging the spiritual growth and development of children. We have trained, professional staff facilitating our children’s programming in order to provide high-quality experiences and allow for parents and caregivers to explore their own beliefs during adult faith conversations and worship services.
Sundays at 10:30 am
Children and their parents begin Sunday mornings together in the Sanctuary for the beginning of worship service. Children are then “sung out” to participate in Children’s Chapel. Joining other children on Sunday mornings, can help your child to create friendships and explore the same worship and religious education themes in which the adults are finding inspiration. A mix of stories, games, celebrations, shared snack, activities and group discussion allows all children to chime in with their big questions and helps them to find their own answers. Our Children’s Religious Education program is staffed with professional teachers who love to teach.
Sundays at 10:30 am
Our Nursery is a safe and inviting place for our youngest friends and members to play on Sunday mornings, and during all major church events. Children who are too young for our RE Program are cared for by CPR certified teens who are members of our Youth Groups. While we are happy to have babies and toddlers in our worship service with the adults, the Nursery usually turns out to be too fun to resist!
Families are invited to participate in many multigenerational events that are hosted during the church year. From all ages worships to special dinners to social justice events, children and families are active participants.
